Full Time
Are you looking for the next step in your QA career, within an innovative scientific organisation?

A bright, ambitious individual with some QA Administration experience gained within a GxP environment is required to join an exciting business within walking distance of London Bridge. If you have some knowledge of the control and maintenance of a Quality Management System (in a Pharmaceutical / Clinical setting), including providing clerical administrative support such as document control, QC checking and the processing of regulatory submissions, this will be an excellent career opportunity. This is a 12-month fixed-term contract initially, with the possibility of extension beyond this, and the salary is between £24,000 and £28,000 depending on experience. You will be based in Central London most of the time, with occasional travel to the company’s second site in Stevenage, Hertfordshire.

The Company:
You will join an innovative business that is at the forefront of creating a viable and sustainable cell and gene therapy industry in the UK, by bridging the gap between science and commercialisation. Their headquarters are in Central London where they have built a sector-leading multidisciplinary team that has the ability to take a therapy from concept through the development cycle to the market. They offer cutting edge technology and innovation to help companies take their products to clinical trials by providing process development, manufacturing, regulatory, health economics, and market access expertise. The company has had many successes in taking multiple therapies to the latter stages of clinical trials, leading to increasing demand for their services.

The Opportunity:
This will be a broad, busy role including a range of activities to support the company’s QA team. You will assist in the control and maintenance of the QMS, including the management of documents in the Electronic QMS. You will provide clerical administrative support to the Regulatory team, including document filing, administrative QC and support for regulatory submissions.

You will encounter a range of Quality processes and documentation relating to GxP, including GCP, GMP and GLP compliance. Your duties will include drafting, publishing and checking documents, maintaining the company’s training matrix, assist the QA Manager in training new starters on the EQMS, organising meetings and supporting regulatory submissions. The company has a state-of-the-art electronic QMS and this will be an excellent opportunity to develop your career in Quality Assurance.

In addition to a salary of £24k - £28k, you will receive the following benefits (even though this is a 12-month fixed-term contract initially):

- 28 days annual leave + bank holidays
- Performance-related annual bonus
- Travel Loan (after probation)
- Cycle to work scheme
- Contributory pension (after probation)
- Death in service at 4x salary (after probation)
- Private healthcare (after probation)
- Childcare Vouchers
- Eyecare vouchers

Desired Skills and Competencies:
You will ideally have a scientific degree (though this is not essential), together with some experience in a QA role within a commercial scientific organisation (Pharmaceutical, Biotech, Clinical etc). Familiarity with a range of GxP regulations (GMP, GDP, GLP, GCP etc) would be a strong advantage. You will also need to have excellent attention to detail, administrative skills (including document control) and the ability to manage your own time effectively. Though you will be based in London Bridge primarily, this position will involve the occasional need to travel to the company’s second facility in Stevenage, Hertfordshire.

This position is offered on a 12-month fixed-term basis initially and it will be an excellent way to develop your career.
